Duncan has practised, researched, and taught around issues of sustainable development for over 25 years. He has worked on projects as diverse as 'The Greenwich Millennium Village' with Ralph Erskine and HTA, and more recently the multi-award-winning New Country House at Hadlow Down. Author of ‘The Re-Use Atlas: a designer’s guide towards a circular economy’ published by RIBA, he is perhaps best known for a series of thought-provoking ‘house’ projects including 'The House that Kevin Built’ in 2008 and ‘The Brighton Waste House’ in 2014.
Baker-Brown’s research tests the viability of a number of practices and materials, recognising the potential of discarded “waste” as a valuable resource in the future of building, as well as live projects as valuable teaching aides. Through his projects he fosters community development and regeneration, working with apprentice builders and students, informing young people of all ages as to their role in sustainable living. Baker-Brown creates examples of community practice that, through the use of innovative techniques such as ‘resource mapping’ can redefine what local materials are and match them with local skills and trades.
Baker-Brown is currently the Principle Investigator for a 3million Euro Interreg research programme considering the viability of local waste flows to be processed into insulation for the social housing
